Cherry Clafoutis

It’s a funny thing with cherries in my house; sometimes they get gobbled up so quickly I barely get to enjoy any of them, and other times they sit in the fridge untouched for days. On one of those occasions where a big bag of cherries was threatening to go bad due to lack of interest from my household, I decided I’d bake them into something. But what? I wanted something that was going to be easy to put together and made with ingredients I already had on hand. That’s why I settled on making clafoutis. I’d done an apple version before but I’d heard that cherries were nice too, so I gave it a shot. It took a little time to pit all of the cherries, but the assembling the actual recipe took no time at all. I loved the not-too-sweet custard with the plump and flavourful cherries bursting out of it. My family liked it, but I think I enjoyed it the most. It made a great snack, dessert, and even breakfast. What a great way to use cherries!

Cherry Clafoutis
1 1/2 cups pitted cherries
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Place cherries evenly on bottom of a greased 9″ pie plate. Combine remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour batter evenly over cherries. Bake at 375F for 40 minutes until batter has set and edges are golden brown.
